    Pretty funny.

    I wonder what the Chinese and Koreans thought about Tone expressing admiration for the professionalism of Japanese soldiers in World War Two?

    China is obviously pissed off at the success of Mr Abe and the Australian Government in securing substantial Free Trade and Military agreements;

    The Global Times editorial is the closest that China has come to admonishing Australia since last week’s high-profile visit by Mr Abe, in which he advanced the capacity to work together with the Australian military.
    Obviously these sort of things don't go down well because of China's current Cold War with Japan, hence the comment by the state owned Global Times newspaper;


    “The country used to be a place roamed by rascals and outlaws from Europe,” it said. “Perhaps it has to boast its values to cover up its actual lack of confidence in front of Western countries.”
    So Australia continues to 'punch above its weight' in the Asia Pacific - "lascals and outraws", honestly.

    Yes, we have them by the left testicle and they have us by the right testicle. Actually makes for a very good relationship.

    You're kidding yourself of you think we have china by anything other than their coat tails

    They have the money to buy their resources elsewhere. There aren't any other buyers of those resources in anything like the quantity China buys them.
